USCIS Launches Chinese-Language Engagement Series

Inaugural dialogue takes place Feb. 16 – Topic: Becoming a U.S. citizen

 

SAN FRANCISCO — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will conduct its first national Chinese-language public engagement on Feb. 16. The topic will be "The Naturalization Process: Becoming a United States Citizen." This free session will feature a presentation in Chinese and will include a question and answer period for which USCIS officials fluent in both Mandarin and Cantonese will be available.  

This will be the first in a series of engagements called “Jiao liú” – meaning “engagement” in Chinese. At these sessions, USCIS officials will provide agency updates, help customers understand how best to navigate through the immigration experience, and host a question-and-answer forum. Individuals are invited to participate in-person, via live Web stream or teleconference.

This initiative underscores USCIS's commitment to effectively engage with the diverse communities which it serves and to provide timely information about USCIS immigration benefits and services. For more information, please visit www.uscis.gov/jiaoliu.
